Autumn has already arrived and there are already those who are organizing themselves to stock up on fruit and vegetables. Those who have a vegetable garden are in fact harvesting the last fruits of the summer and beginning to sow those of the winter. Anyone wishing to continue enjoying the former only needs to understand how to freeze vegetables and fruit in August and September to bring summer flavors with them. Instead, those who were working to make their green plot bear fruit must decide what to sow in the garden in autumn in October to have a rich harvest for the winter.
For those who can only buy at the market, we recommend buying seasonal products. Today we talk about one of these, also illustrating its wonderful qualities. In fact, only one fruit is enough to reach the daily requirement of this precious vitamin for health. Let’s see together what it is and how we can consume it to reap the greatest benefit.
Just one fruit is enough to reach the daily requirement of this precious vitamin for health
We are talking about a very common fruit in the winter season, the kiwi. This specimen originally from China is now very common on our tables and is suitable for those who must undergo dietary regimes. In fact, it contains just 44 calories for every 100 grams (considering only the weight of the pulp). Then they are rich in antioxidant substances, useful for decelerating the aging process. The most significant is their quantity of vitamin C. In fact, only a medium-sized fruit is enough to reach the recommended daily threshold and even to slightly exceed it. According to Humanitas data, this is set at 90 micrograms for men and about 70 for women. The latter increases if the woman is pregnant.
Other advantages of this wonderful fruit
However, it is necessary to make some premises. This exorbitant percentage of vitamin C can only be found in raw fruit. All further processing, such as jams or candied fruit, does not lead to the same effect. Then it is best to consume it at the end of one of the main meals. In fact, if you act in this way you can better absorb the content of the plants, in particular the iron. Finally, due to the fibers contained within it, kiwifruit is excellent for counteracting the annoying phenomenon of constipation and for acquiring intestinal regularity.
Apathy, weakness and muscle aches could be due to the deficiency of this precious vitamin
